Wilton’s Music Hall, the world’s oldest grand music hall, brings Sally Dexter to the stage as the first female Scrooge

The East End’s beloved Wilton’s Music Hall will showcase a retelling of Christmas Carol this festive season. Running from the 29th of November to the 4th January, Piers Torday’s new take on the classic will delight audiences of all ages as our villain turns heroine. We’ve partnered with Wilton’s Music Hall to give you and your family a special offer, saving you **£6 off stall tickets!

The starring role will be played by Olivier Award-winning, musical legend and soap opera star, Sally Dexter. Taking on the role of Fan Marley, the late Ebeneezer Scrooge’s sister who married Marley and who, as his widow, has inherited the business and his reputation as the meanest miser in town. Notorious as the lonely, penny-pinching and downright malicious misanthrope and despised by all who cross her path, three spirits visit Fan on Christmas Eve to show her why she must change her nasty ways.

Fans of Emmerdale will know Sally as Faith Dingle but her credits include some of the West End’s most loved productions including Billy Elliot The Musical and Oliver!  She won an Olivier Award for her performance in Dalliance at the Lyttleton Theatre. She is certain to deliver a powerhouse performance as the first ever female Scrooge to appear on a London stage.

Brought to Wilton’s by the team behind the critically-acclaimed The Box of Delights, this adaptation has been written especially for Wilton’s Music Hall by children’s author Piers Torday (The Frozen Sea, The Last Wild). The audience can expect to be dazzled with design by Tom Piper and direction from Stephanie Street.

Brimming with spellbinding magic, haunting music and out-of-this-world puppetry, arguably the most famous festive story ever written will be retold beautifully at the most Christmassy theatre in East London.
